Playing with Vintage

At the weekend I was making a few more cards to take into work & I bought this new paper pad. Its the Papermania Inspirations warm tones.
I just had to have them & quite fancy the earthy ones too.
As soon as I saw this sheet of pink I immediately thought of a story for my card. The picture is a World War 1 soldier & the card is designed around his girl. She is waiting back home for him.
This is her writing desk.
I loved the modern print mixed with the old photo & the vintage ephemera.
I plan a few more to go with it.
This weekend I must complete my CJ entry & also get some rest. But I so want to play too!!!
